Did you know? The average desktop PC wastes nearly half of the energy it consumes as heat. This wasted electricity translates to higher electricity bills and increased greenhouse gas emissions.

Fun Fact: Using power management features on your computer can save nearly half a ton of CO2 and more than $60 a year in energy costs.

What you can do:  Making some simple changes to your computer’s power management settings is an easy and inexpensive way to make a difference in your environmental impact. With a few mouse clicks, your computer can be set to automatically go to “sleep” when it’s not in use.

I’m already using Power Management, thanks!
Now that I know about Power Management, I will turn it on.
I probably won’t use Power Management. Why?
